CSA Reporting Form

Campus Security Authority (CSA) is a Clery term that encompasses groups of individuals and organizations associated with an institution.  Campus Security Authorities are defined as any individual who has significant contact with students or responsibility for student and campus activities including but not limited to housing, disciplinary action, or judicial proceedings. Any faculty or staff member who is an advisor to any student organization is automatically a Campus Security Authority. Any faculty or staff member who has a participatory role in the disciplinary process of a student is automatically a Campus Security Authority. The purpose of a CSA is that the Department of Education recognizes that not everyone wants to report crimes to campus or local law enforcement. They tend to feel more comfortable confiding in their Club Advisor, Coach, Counselor or their Dean, or the Human Resource Services Office, among others. Individuals who meet the criteria for being a CSA:

  • Dean of Students
  • Student housing or student extracurricular activities staff
  • Director of Athletics and team coaches
  • Employees/Staff who monitor access, e.g., Recreation Center staff
  • Faculty advisor to a student group
  • Coordinator of Greek Life
  • Public Safety/Police Department

If you are designated as a CSA, or want more information on a CSA, please review the Campus Security Authority Website.
